as broad. the wall street journal reports the national security agency ended a program that spied on as many as 35 world leaders after the white house ordered an internal review over the summer. senior officials say several programs have already been shutdown and others are expected to be closed at a later date. the report also states president obama spent nearly five years in office in the dark, unaware of the nsa's practices overseas. officials say the targets of these programs are not typically decided by the president but by the agency. yesterday congressman peter king defended the nsa's programs saying they should be viewed as a positive thing for everyone involved. >> the president should stop apologizing and stop being defensive. the reality is the nsa saved thousands of lives. not just the united states but also in france and germany and throughout europe. we're not doing it for the fun of it. this is to gather valuable intelligence which helps not just us but the europeans. >> with the government shutdown behind us and the fight of obama care still going the republican pa
a round of revelations about the national security agency. we have this report. >> these are the slides leaked by whistle blower edward snowden in june revealing u.s. authorities are demanding internet companies hand them user information. as long as the national security agency or the fbi are 51% sure that the user is foreign, their emails, audio and video chats, photographs and documents are theirs for the searching. carefully worded denils follow from the companies, arguing that they only give specific information to the u.s. government as legally required on a case by case basis. these assurances have been left irrelevant sholling the number of sa -- showing the nsa has bypassed this, breaking into googles and yahoo!'s cables. citizens no longer receive protection awes all information is -- as all information is considered foreign. >> the government backs into the cables as a backdoor to get around the complaints. >> one thing is clear - any data protections that do exist are only for u.s. citizens. >> if you are not a citizen, if you are a non-american outside the united states, b

, the problem is we're not getting the full story out of the national security agency. if they had been simply running through spanish calls looking for particular terrorists over the course of a month, 60 million called is no big deal. it's almost acceptable. i think the shock for most people is that the united states allowed this to be leaked out in documented. that's what the french and germans and spanish are reacting to. now as for listening, to heads of state, that's something else. and frankly it would be highly unusual for the national security agency to monitor the chancellor of germany's phone and not tell the president early on. that would be completely opposite standard operating procedure. >> and that's what the "the wall street journal" is saying this morning citing several sources that the president wasn't notified of this. you have called this the worst damage to u.s. intelligence in 30 or 40 years. with a it worth it? >> absolutely not. look, the national security agency, i depended upon it for my entire career. it's got brilliant information when it comes to counterterrorism.
security agency monitored millions of phone calls, text messages and e-mails of spanish citizens and earlier nsa said the country's president barack obama had no idea that merkel's phone was being tapped. and media have reported that obama was informed about the phone monitoring in 2010 and the union delegations expect to be member of congress to express its concerns over the u.s. spying program. in washington they are not happy so let's talk about that joining us on skype in a college in london. this is a bit of bluster and won't change and knew it was happening anyway. >> the government official claims to be shocked, shocked that they are running a gambling casino and taking kickbacks at the same time. there is no doubt about it european leaders are aware that the u.s. engages in this work. many european spy agencies work alongside the nsa, dch q in the uk for example and there is no doubt there is bluff and bluster that you refer to it as and a lot of posturing going on for public consumption. >>> it's merkel's phone and reaches right to the heart of government and is that int
in the u.k. has been overshadowed by reports of spying by america's national security agency. according to nsa leaker eric snowden, there has been eavesdropping. the e.u. envoy will arrive in washington. >> reporter: that's right, they'll be joined by members of congress, think tanks and telephone companies to discuss the surveillance of citizens. this is a delegation that had been organized some months ago. the european parliament had set up an inquiry as a result of the news from eric snowden. we are expecting some sort of emergency delegation of intelligence officials from both germany and france to washington in the next few days to have talks, but we're not sure when that is going to happen. as for whether they're going to get any joy through congress we heard that europe should be grateful for the surveillance, it's keeping europe safe. we're not sure what you all are complaining about. >> they have also said that the french and the germans spy on the usa so don't be surprised we do it to you. this is quite interesting. angela merkel, apparently she has been bugged, if you like, f
at the level of the national security agency and the way the protocols are set up at this point, that's sort of where the line of information would stop. there isn't necessarily a reason why they would tell the white house there's no protocol that insists that they do. and in the case of the monitoring the chancellor merkel and some 35 other leaders, nsa hadn't brought it to the white house's attention. >> the dates are significant because the monitoring dates go back to 2002 on angela merkel, which also would explain from the officials quoted here why the president would not be brought into the loop on this. as bizarre as that sounds to some people. >> at what level it sounds a little odd. you could see a situation where a program starts as far back as 2002 and keeps -- nsa is a very large organization with incredibly monitoring surveillance programs and these things kind of have -- unless someone puts a stop to them. >> many are processing what this means to the world and the u.s. reputation as we know european leaders are quite angry over these revelations. i want to play with european pa

with the security agencies and intelligence agencies of other nations, of allied nations. i'm not going to get into the specific alleged activities, intelligence activities, of the united states or our allies. we're obviously more broadly engaged in a review as i discussed at length yesterday of our intelligence gathering activities, mindful of the fact that because of the explosion in our technological capacities , we need to look at and make sure that we are not just gathering intelligence because we can, but we're gathering it because we need it specifically and that review is under way at the president's direction and will be completed by the end of the year. >> one of the things that officials say of the review is the surveillance of allied heads of state. is the administration's plan to conduct this review and tell the public of its outcomes all at once or is it possible that we could learn in the coming days or a shorter time frame of the decision on that specific program ahead of speed, surveillance? >> i think generally speaking you should expect it upon conclusion of the review. we w
